Hand painted on artist board, this antique oil painting depicts fives elderly gentlemen as they are listening intently as one reads a newspaper. The hats with tassels and head wears on the men are eye catching which may help to identify their country of origin.
There are no signs of restoration on this oil on wood painting. It was beautifully framed to a vintage duo-color (dark brown and golden) finish wooden frame. The artwork measures 8" (20cm) x 11.75" (30cm). The frame measures 19" (48 cm) x 15.5" (40 cm).
This stunning painting with its unique subject of men reading a newspaper is truly a rarity for our time when newspaper reading is sadly vanishing as a daily habit. Owning this magnificent painting is like cherishing the old times precious events.
